Wrinkles and frown lines often first appear in the brow and forehead area. A forehead lift or brow lift can smooth out the wrinkles and correct drooping brows and heavy lids to provide a younger, friendlier, more youthful appearance. Dr. Joseph Russo plastic surgeon in Boston brow lift is offered because it has the ability to reveal a hidden upper lid. This procedure is frequently performed in conjunction with eyelid procedures, however, yields a spectacular result on its own.
Two incisions are made in the hairline, hidden from obvious view. The tissue is freed from the underlying structure and pulled upward. The forehead skin is then re-draped and smooth, taut skin is revealed.
Recovery times can vary a little from patient to patient, but it will usually take at least two weeks until you can resume your regular routine. In the meantime, you may have bruising, swelling, and soreness. Stitches can be removed after up to 10 days. You should abstain from work, school, or other obligations for at least a week. In addition, swelling can also last up to six weeks, which can create some discomfort. We strive to provide one of the best brow lift Boston has to offer and while the results of your surgery will become more noticeable within a few days, they will become completely visible once the swelling completely fades.
If your eyebrows are sagging, you may find your expression has changed to look tired, sad, or upset all of the time. A brow lift can reduce this sign of aging and brighten your expression, making a brow lift one of the best options for reducing the lines deepening in your face and returning a youthful appearance to your expression.
You are likely to feel tender, sore, and bruised after your surgery, although most Boston brow lift patients describe this mild discomfort and choose to take over-the-counter pain relievers to alleviate this moderate level of pain. You may also experience some itching and/or numbness while you’re healing, which should go away within three months.
Any procedures with incisions will leave small scars. However, the placement of the incisions varies depending on what’s being done, with most scars located along the forehead or in the folds of your skin. This reduces their visibility, and they will fade even further over time.
Depending on the kind of brow lift procedure you have, the cost will vary. Brow lifts are generally considered elective surgeries and not covered by insurance. However, there are financing and payment options available if you need them.
